at MUSEXPO Asia Pacific & One Movement for Music. The Asia Pacific
region is one of the most rapidly emerging music markets in the world
and I'm looking forward to attending an event that will bring together
some great people from around the globe to this burgeoning music landscape."
(Chairman, Sire Records
"I thoroughly enjoyed MUSEXPO. There are so many of these conferences
around the world, that I really didn't know what to expect. MUSEXPO,
with the quality of its organization and participants, makes it a very
valuable conference to attend. I look forward to participating again
next year. The Focus on Asia was an outstanding panel. Emerging markets
like India and China are the key to the music industry's survival
over the next twenty years."
(Worldwide Executive Of Music & Marketing, Electronic Arts)
"As tastemakers ourselves, our network includes A&R Worldwide
as a critical resource. Their vast knowledge and connections add to
their ability to musically future forecast with us. Wherever they are
putting on this conference [MUSEXPO], we will be there for sure!"
(EVP, Music, BMG) (UK & Europe)
"It was pure serendipity that my teenage children dragged me along
to The Borderline to see an unknown new Australian act called The Temper
Trap playing their first UK gig. I was totally blown away by their songs
and performance and would like to thank the A&R Worldwide organization
for being brave enough to include them at MUSEXPO Europe 2008 in England
to play what's now become a legendary debut London show. A&R Worldwide
have always championed great new talent in a way that is sorely lacking
these days; their enthusiasm, knowledge and networking is exactly what
drives this great business. Their ability to link developing artists
with music executives and radio producers and their unerring support
to connect like-minded people on a worldwide basis is truly unique."
(Chairman/CEO, Atlantic Records)
Worldwide/MUSEXPO Founder] Sat Bisla is brilliantly connected on a worldwide
basis with such terrific relationships to unearth the next great talent.
He also has excellent ears and can spot the hits. Anyone who has the
pleasure of knowing him is blessed."

"With their strong international network A&R Worldwide
has the ability to bring together the world's top music talent finders
and developers and their annual conference [MUSEXPO] provides a unique
opportunity for global artist discovery and marketing opportunities."
(President & CEO, Arista Records)
Worldwide's MUSEXPO is a great forum to network with other like-minded

I was impressed with both the organization and caliber of attendees."
(Founder/CEO, Glassnote Entertainment)
"Thank you again for including me in
this year's MUSEXPO. It was one of the most productive conferences
I've attended in years...solutions and advice, rather than negative
nonsense and gossip. The speakers were candid and informative. I was
proud to be on our panel. This was the first time I met Mike Walsh...what
an impressive gentleman! And I loved sharing with Seymour, Peter and
Steve. Congratulations to you and your team for a job well done!"
Bruce Flohr (Chief Strategy Offices & EVP, Red Light Management)

that I know what to expect. "

on such a great event. It was relevant and fun. Many events manage the
latter, but few combine both. I look forward to the next one."

areas of the international music and media business. In addition, it

that is saying something!"

for inviting me! I really enjoyed it."
(Managing Director, Spotlite)
MUSEXPO was very helpful to me since I was able to meet with so many
key professionals in the music and media industries. MUSEXPO gave me
a great opportunity to let potential partners in the US and outside
of China know of our existence, as well as the potential opportunities
for them in China. I appreciated the fact that so many top executives
wanted to speak with me after my MUSEXPO panel to learn more about Top
100 and the Chinese market."

involved with MUSEXPO and thanks for the invitation to moderating
the live panel, I enjoyed it!"
